1995 Hyundai Accent ex basic model from North America


Value added


The brakes squeal.

The back struts are done in.

Rust has appeared on bottom of doors and around wheel wells.

The side mirrors are fading.

Rust is popping out on the pain and gas cap.

General Comments:

A really good car overall.

The gas mileage is amazing. It cost me $25 to fill up the little guy and it is roomier then most cars with the 60-40 seats. It is one of the few cars that actually fit 2 bikes into quite easily. I work for a rental car company and I always get people into them. It is a really good car.

1995 Hyundai Accent Manual from North America


I did replace the brake pads, but that after 70,000 miles. Other than that, nothing!

General Comments:

I bought used 1995 Accent in a hurry in 1999, with 32,000. I have to say I'm impressed with the fact that I have driven in snow, ice and rain all the way up to 111,000 without a single mechanical problem.

It handles well. Acceleration is not too great, although I did get a speeding ticket for doing 86 mph.

The radio still works, so does the heat and electrical system, etc.

I've gotten 5 years and 70,000 problem-free miles out of a car I paid $3,000 for, which works out to $600 per year. At that rate a car costing $30,000 would have to last a half century without a problem.

Bottom line: Even from a 1995 vehicle, Hyundai has proven to be an exceptional value.

1995 Hyundai Accent L 1.5L Gas from North America


Zippy gas miser and fun to own


I bought my Accent used, in 2000. Right away I had a problem with the exhaust pipe from the manifold, which they fixed immediately, no charge. That's my one good dealing with Hyundai service.

The windows on both doors were extremely stiff to roll up (manual handles) and down. When I called the dealer they told me to spray silicone lubricant into the tracks, which lasts only until the next rainfall, and you have to keep doing it over and over.

The cable clip on the drivers' door window has now snapped off and the window will not roll up OR down. I am currently waiting to hear from Hyundai whether they will replace the mechanism in a goodwill process or how much it will cost me to have them repair it for me. I've driven cars for over 25 years and cannot believe they would use plastic wheels & pulleys to roll the manual windows up and down - they are cheap and even on an inexpensive car, how much would it have taken to put metal pulleys and wheels on a high-tension mechanism, anyways???

Other than these latest problems, I do love my purple 95 Accent though. I'm looking at the Hyundai ElantraGT next though, just for a little more highway boot.

General Comments:

Hyundai should really look at where they put the plastic working parts in their cars. Other than that I have no real complaints, for now.

1995 Hyundai Accent GL 1 SOHC, 4 cylinder from North America


Small car with a little kick to it!


The ceiling is falling off the roof of the car.

The hatch on the trunk broke off.

We have a good deal of rust on the body.

General Comments:

My brother who purchased it originally did all the maintenance required for the 7 year warranty.

The engine runs very nicely and except for the cosmetic damages we are very satisfied.
